Environmental Issues and Concerns: 

Environmental Issues and Concerns Louisiana Dept. of Environmental Quality Debris Management

STORM DEBRIS MANAGEMENT : 

STORM DEBRIS MANAGEMENT Storm Debris Quantity EstimatesBased upon Corps of Engineer Debris Models

STORM DEBRIS MANAGEMENT Hurricane Katrina : 

STORM DEBRIS MANAGEMENTHurricane Katrina Generated an estimated 22 million tons (55 million cubic yards) of debris

Hurricane Rita: 

Hurricane Rita Generated an estimated 2.6 million tons (6 million cubic yards) of debris

Debris management sites were identified by the local parishes, evaluated and approved by LDEQ: 

Debris management sites were identified by the local parishes, evaluated andapproved by LDEQ Woodwaste Burning Operations Woodwaste Chipping and Grinding Construction and Demolition Staging or Disposal Staging of Boats, Vehicles, White Goods Staging of Household Hazardous Waste

STORM DEBRIS MANAGEMENT : 

STORM DEBRIS MANAGEMENT Construction & Demolition Wastes Management An estimated 140,000-160,000 homes in Southeast Louisiana received flood damage All White Goods (refrigerators, stoves, washer-dryers, etc) were removed from each home for recycling All thermostats were removed because they contain mercury All smoke detectors were removed because they contain small amounts of radioactive materials Household Hazardous Waste (pesticides, bleach, solvents, etc.) were removed from each home for disposal  Vehicles, boats were hauled to staging areas

Current debris management sites - Used to process 67% of the Katrina and Rita generated debris: 

Current debris management sites - Used to process 67% of the Katrina and Rita generated debris Approximately 173 Sites in Katrina Impacted Parishes Approximately 170 Sites in Rita Impacted Parishes

Current Debris Management: 

Current Debris Management There are still millions of cubic yards of debris that needs to be cleaned and disposed in South Louisiana from Hurricanes Katrina and Rita

Current Debris Management: 

Current Debris Management Asbestos Containing Materials (ACM) have slowed the process of demolishing residential structures and rebuilding

National Emission Standards for Hazardous Air Pollutants (NESHAPS): 

National Emission Standards for Hazardous Air Pollutants (NESHAPS) Regulated ACM – 1% by weight that can be crushed with hand pressure Regulated by EPA, LDEQ & OSHA RACM must be disposed in a Type 1 or 2 landfill Non RACM (Cat 1 & 2) may be disposed in a Construction & Debris landfill

Regulated Asbestos-Containing Material (RACM): 

Regulated Asbestos-Containing Material (RACM) a. friable asbestos material; b. Category I nonfriable ACM that has become friable; c. Category I nonfriable ACM that will be or has been subjected to sanding, grinding, cutting, or abrading; or d. Category II nonfriable ACM that has a high probability of becoming or has become crumbled, pulverized, or reduced to powder by the forces expected to act on the material in the course of demolition or renovation operations regulated by this Subchapter.

Types of ACM Found in Homes: 

Types of ACM Found in Homes Asbestos Roofing (Cat 2 non-Regulated - RACM) Asbestos Siding (Cat 2 non-Regulated) Thermal System Insulation (TSI) Regulated Other Regulated ACM or RACM Popcorn Ceiling - Regulated Drop down ceilings - Regulated Sheetrock mud – Regulated Window caulking, Vinyl Asbestos Tile (Cat 1 non RACM)

Why Residential Structures are Regulated : 

Why Residential Structures are Regulated Facility—any institutional, commercial, public, industrial, or residential structure, installation, or building (including any structure, installation, or building containing condominiums or individual dwelling units operated as a residential cooperative, but excluding residential buildings having four or fewer dwelling units) Installation—any building or structure or any group of buildings or structures at a single demolition or renovation site that are under the control of the same owner or operator (or owner or operator under common control).

NESHAP Applicability: 

NESHAP Applicability Structures completely knocked down by the Hurricanes – not applicable to NESHAPS Partially knocked down structures – applicable No inspections, segregation & disposal in a Type 1, 2, or 3 landfill Sound Structures – applicable Full inspections, segregation & disposal in a Type 1 2, or 3 landfill

LDEQ Protocol for Removal of RACM: 

LDEQ Protocol for Removal of RACM LDEQ believes that removal of ACM from homes can be conducted in an effective manner that is protective of the public. Removal of non RACM by mechanical means Employs best management practices – wetting, bagging, segregation, and disposal Disposal in a segregated area of a C&D disposal site More cost effective and saves landfill capacity
